The Sherborne Literary Society was formed early in 2012 and is open to everyone.


The aims are to:

• Bring together national and local writers to discuss their work

• Provide a forum for the area’s own aspiring writers

• Create an interest in books amongst young audiences

• Raise the culture of reading

• Demonstrate the fun and creativity associated with the written word

• Run an annual Literary Festival for Sherborne and the surrounding area
